Great Stay at Chunky Bear

Reviewed on 2022-01-04 by Erica

We had a wonderful stay at the Chunky Bear. Great, private location that is close to Wisp and the other activities. We had a concern about trash on property and an odor, and they were immediately addressed once they were reported. I would stay here again!
I’m sorry to hear about the issue regarding the trash, Erica, but am so glad our team could resolve this promptly for you. It’s great to know that this hiccup didn’t prevent you from having a fantastic time at The Chunky Bear overall. Thanks for your review - we hope to host you again soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

Only rent if you plan to use indoor space only. Broken outdoor furniture (75% unusable), hot tub water was green and smelled upon arrival and weeds were everywhere (including sidewalk, patio, etc.)

Pros and Cons

This place definitely left us a little disappointed. I'll start with the positives: The location is exactly as described, very secluded, super long driveway, pretty rough in places but a pretty drive. The cabin is adorable inside and the decor is nice. The kitchen has lots of pots and pans and dishes, and a Keurig and standard coffee pot both, which is nice. The beds are comfortable and the bunk room provides a ton of sleep space. Two living rooms is a nice idea, although the first floor does not have very much seating. The fire pit was great. Now for the negatives: The furniture in the living room has plywood under the cushions, so it is very uncomfortable, the hot tub is a very basic unit, (not a lot of jets), the carpet is stained and dirty and needs replaced, and the shower in the on suite is the size of a phone booth. Window air conditioning makes the temperature really cold in the rooms with units to try to cool the other areas so it's really uncomfortable in those rooms, a cement floor on the first floor makes the space not very cozy. I wish I had known some of the negatives before I booked this rental, I definitely would have booked something else.
Hi, Shelly! Thanks for your review. I’m glad to hear that you found many things to your satisfaction at The Chunky Bear and appreciate your feedback on those aspects you found lacking.

Had a really nice time. The booking process had a hiccup or two, but the agent worked to get over them in good faith, and the house was as advertised. Our group enjoyed our experience. Thanks for making sure the hot tub was fixed before we arrived!

What a wonderful place to stay! The inside is beautiful and we were pleased to see a new hot tub. We used the fire pit at night. Close to so many activities for the family. We also took family photos at the Cabin and they turned out beautiful.
So glad to hear it, Terran! Come back and relax again soon. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

A happy family at The Chunky Bear

Reviewed on 2021-03-25 by Wendy

Our family of 4 really enjoyed our stay at The Chunky Bear! We were quite disappointed before arrival to learn that the hot tub would be out of order but everything else was better than expected. We especially loved the bear’s company in the main room and all the bear themed artwork and decor. We loved exploring the area and playing outside in the snow. A 4 wheel drive is essential in winter as the gravel driveway was not plowed.
Thank you for taking the time out to share your experience with us. We're so happy you had a great time at The Chunky Bear, and can't wait to have you back soon. ~Deborah Fike, Railey Vacations

We enjoyed our stay at the Chunky Bear during the Winter and found it was the perfect size for our family of 5. The older 2 boys each got a top bunk and baby got his own bedroom! The space is cozy but nicely designed with two living areas and an open kitchen/dining area. The hot tub was excellent after a day on the slopes at Wisp. Our boys loved the game Sorry and also assembling the Frozen puzzle. It's so nice when rental property games and puzzles still have all the pieces like this one! We fortunately brought our own Fire Stick so we could stream movies on the big screen. The grill worked great and the wifi was strong. AT&T had good reception at the house. Would rent here again!

This cabin was perfect for our family and family dog!! :) I was nervous about choosing a place and "The Chunky Bear" which is just an adorable name, was just awesome!! We loved it! There was so much space and so many choices in the cabin where we could all be together watching a movie, roasting marshmallows at the fire pit, in the hot tub, cooking meals and eating together at the big kitchen table (plenty of cookware) - while our lab was laying right on the floor beside us! It was so relaxing - close enough to everything but still far away that you felt like you were alone in the woods. The house has an upstairs "living room" where kids have space and you have space downstairs for adults if you wanted to split up. Just a perfect location, a very comfortable set-up, and an adorable atmosphere! We would go back in a heartbeat!
